Taiwan Naval Academy possible guidon indeed never exsists.
There was a very similar flag, the flag of the Honor Guard of the Friendship Promoting Fleet. (see: http://www.navy77.url.tw/school%20picture/squadron/03.jpg  http://www.navy77.url.tw/school%20picture/squadron/03.jpg  on http://www.navy77.url.tw/CNA%20living%20sketch/%E6%95%A6%E7%9D%A6%E9%81%A0%E8%88%AA3.htm  http://www.navy77.url.tw/CNA%20living%20sketch/%E6%95%A6%E7%9D%A6%E9%81%A0%E8%88%AA3.htm  in Chinese)
We can see very clearly that the school's name was not above the school's emblem on the flag, and there is a white square on the hoist and some Chinese text written there.
I'm trying to verify the Chinese text, and after verifying, the correct image will be upload. So, please hold this incorrect GIF.

It is translated as 'Cadet Brigade' or 'Brigade of Midshipmen' on http://www.cna.edu.tw/~na/english_web/cnadaily/Cadet%20Brigade.htm; I use the latter translation to conform with the US Naval Academy
practice.
Miles Li, 02 July 2014

With help from a veteran naval commander, the Chinese text written on the flag was verified, and the "possible guidon" was identified, too. This flag was for the "Brigade of Midshipmen", used in 1980s, of Taiwanese Naval Academy. The Chinese text means "Brigade of Midshipmen at Naval Academy". Besides, because the most main members of the Friendship Promoting Fleet are the seniors of the academy, the flag was flown on the performance of the Fleet's honor guard. By the way, the flag had no gold fringes as what we see on the photos.

The Army First Non-Commissioned Officers School (1957-1986), also known as Army Non-Commissioned Officers School (1986-2000) and as the National Army Senior High School (since Oct 2000) uses a flag identical to that of the Military Academy except for the unit name at hoist.
This flag has yellow fringe, white metal spearhead finial, and red tassels.
Miles Li, 18 March 2004

This school was established as "the First Non-Commissioned Officers School" in 1957 by Chiang Kai-shek. In 1986, it was integrated itself with the Second and Third Non-Commissioned Officers Schools and renamed as "Army Non-Commissioned Officers School." Then, it was tranformed to "National Army Senior High School" in 2000. In August 2005, the school was officially reformed as the Army Academy ROC (Taiwan).
